Tascot carpets meet 'Green Label Plus Limits'
11
Jul '08
Tascot Carpets, has been recognised as the first manufacturer of Axminster carpet to meet the stringent criteria of the Carpet Institute of Australia's Environmental Certification Scheme (ECS), an extension of the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme.

The technical criteria covers Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions, noise reduction and thermal insulation properties that relate to environmental performance and are more stringent than those of the US Carpet and Rug Institute's synthetic carpet based 'Green Label Plus' Scheme.

ECS VOC emission limits have been set at, or lower than, the equivalent Green Label Plus limits, and additional VOC's have been added to the CRI list of 13 'chemicals of concern.'

The acoustic criteria for impact and reverberation noise reduction were determined taking into account the results of CSIRO testing on a range of residential and commercial carpets. The selection of the ECS performance criteria for thermal insulation was based on existing research.

Overall, the ECS performance criteria are more stringent than other standards set for environmental certification in the Australasian marketplace.

Tascot Carpets is Australia's only Axminster weaving mill and is a wholly owned Australian company employing more than 170 people nationwide.

We are devoted not only to our customers and product quality, but to continual research and development into improving our environmental procedures and standards.
